I admit it. I routinely check the Amazon sales ranking on all three of my books. I know it doesn’t mean much, but it does provide a feel for how things are going.
When I checked this afternoon all three of my books were hovering around the one hundred thousand mark. That doesn’t sound great so I prefer to convert it to a percentage. Amazon lists about 33 million titles, so I figure all of my books are in the top 3 percent. That sounds a lot better.
As near as I can tell, the hundred thousand mark means that a book is selling one or two copies a week, so I’m not making enough to buy the cool Tesla Model S I’ve be coveting. Still I’m glad to know that things could be worse.
If you’re considering a trip to Yellowstone, or if you know someone who is, or you just want to read some great stories about travel there, I hope you’ll consider buying my books:
- Adventures in Yellowstone: A dozen classic tales about people and events you’ll hear about when you visit the Park.
- The Stories of Yellowstone: Seventy-two brief stories you can read around the evening camp fire, or while you’re traveling between sights.
- Macon’s Perfect Shot: A realistic novel about a boy’s trip to Yellowstone Park in the 1870s. Written for middle grades, but an enjoyable story for anyone.
I’ll be glad if you buy them. And I think you’ll be glad too.
One thought on “Sales of All My Books Break the Top Three Percent on Amazon”
I have just finished reading Adventures in Yellowstone and was captivated by it. I had the fortunate experience to spend 2 glorious weeks camping in Yellowstone with my best friend from Bozeman, MT 2 years ago. I had never camped a day in my life and was scared to death at the prospect of the trip but came back to New Jersey with a wonderful sense of accomplishment and a most amazing experience. Reading your book, I could relate to so much of it especially the geysers, mud pots, the waterfalls and the wildlife although I never saw one moose or bear the whole time which was most disappointing. One of the highlights of our trip was taking a shower at the Mammoth Hot Springs hotel for $3.60 since we had our own towels. Can’t wait to go back and I will certainly read your other books.
